Something special... wedding customization

This hair pin and bracelet was made for Karen, whom is getting married in Germany.  She wanted a hair pin with something blue, following English wedding tradition something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue.   It's a totally new challenge to me when I got this special request, a hair pin for wedding!! Something I've not done before and have no idea how to start with. After few trial and error, I've finally succeed in making her a hair pin with Swarovski white pearls and complete with few Swarovski crystal bicones in light blue.

 A bracelet made with Swarovsi pearls and bicones (Icy's design).

When Venn show me a photo of her wedding gown and ask me whether I can custom make a bellt and  cuff similiar to Johanna Johnson's design, I told her it's possible provided she can get the rhinestones. So far I hardly see these type of rhinestones in Malaysia market. After searching around material shops in Klang Valley, we came to a conclusion to use  pearls, crystal and seed beads instead of rhinestones.

Luck is on Venn's side, on her trip to Hong Kong, she actually found these rhinestones in various sizes and shape which is just perfect to make her vintage inspired accessories. The important mission was on me as how to assemble these rhinestones together to create a belt and cuff. Another challenging job as I'm not so good with sewing.  Moreover, after deciding the design, I had to carefully sew the rhinestones onto a tulle, a fine netting which is easily breaks.

Here's the result.....after few weeks of hard work :))

I've also made a pair of matching earrings for her with the balance rhinestones.
